On 2 November 1928 David Gibson married Marion Sneddon Lively at the Manse in Blantyre after banns were published and according to the forms of the Church of Scotland. At the time of his marriage, he lived at 17 School Lane in Blantyre and worked on-cost at a colliery. I do know know if he and Marion had children.

David's wife died in 1982 in Blantyre, but I do not know when he died.
